Carrie Underwood will headline Spotify’s inaugural Hot Country Live concert on July 4 at New York’s The Rooftop at Pier 17.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of Spotify’s first ever Hot Country Live show, and can’t wait to celebrate the holiday playing live music under the stars,” says Carrie.

Dan + Shay will open the concert on July 4, two weeks after the release of their new self-titled album on June. 22.

The Rooftop at Pier 17 boats a 1.5-acre rooftop with views of the East River bridges and room for up to 3,400 standing guests.

Future Hot Country Live concerts will be announced in the coming weeks.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
